    i've managed to block news.softpedia.com in my hosts file, but i read it's based on Automatix code. i wonder if there'll be any flame wars

    what's the url? does it have a home page? i can't find it.
    Thanks to the forums staff for your dedication and hard work

    Not recommending it, but here is a link
    http://ultamatix.com/

    http://ubuntusoftware.info/

    I would say use it in virtualbox install or install k/ubuntu to a spare testing partition and play around there with it.

    Or download ultimate linux, their distro and test that out:
    http://ultimateedition.info/Ultimate_Edition_1.8/

    I cant see the ubuntu devs being too happy with ultamatix installing stuff from 3rd party repos again, then later breaking dist-upgrade to Intrepid Ibis, but I may be wrong

    good luck

    Hey look someone is using my code for a new Automatix, I hope they keep my name in the credits since they are obviously still at least using my user interface. BTW we did not sell out Automatix to anyone, we just got to busy to keep the project up.

    Yes I did keep you name in the credits. I did clean up a bunch of your code no pun intended, you are more then welcome to it, a majority of the bugs were in the bash section of the code, you did a pretty good job & should be proud of your work.

    Just so everyone knows it uses my repos & mediaubuntus, it will also install bin files something that is not going to happen through synaptec or any other package manager for that matter. America's Army is not in the repos, return to castle wolfenstien just to name a few...

    I have fixed about 95 % of what is on his list and will eventually fix everything. I am no newbie to programming.

    Cool, another Hoosier!

    Maybe this should be merged with the "Flame War" thread. Although I did notice some cool things about Ultimatix, such as the games that it can install that aren't in the repos.

    Several similar threads merged. Automatix, Ultamatix and all its incarnations can be discussed in this thread.

    Play on.
